4th Wall Theatre Company presents Disgraced
4th Wall Theatre Company's main stage season will kick off with the Houston premiere of Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Disgraced.
Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Disgraced tells the tale of Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she's an artist, and her work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out to be a friendly conversation escalates into the stuff of great drama.
In addition to winning the Pulitzer, Disgraced was the recipient of the 2015 Tony Award for Best New Play, the 2013 OBIE award for playwriting, and the 2012 Joseph Jefferson Award for New Work – Play or Musical.
